COVID-19 has caused major changes on every level for businesses in every sector. When it comes to office cleaning and sanitizing, the communal-use areas and high-touch points in your office now need to be cleaned and disinfected regularly and frequently. ServiceMaster of North Toronto provides professional office cleaning and sanitizing services including telephone sanitizing and cleaning and sanitizing for computer workstations and other high-traffic locations in your office, to help prevent the outbreak and transmission of infectious disease in workplaces.
While some areas of offices such as door handles, elevator buttons, reception areas are more prone to harbour bacteria, it turns out that phones, desks and computer keyboards and accessories are the worst offenders. A study conducted by environmental microbiologist Dr. Charles Gerba at the University of Arizona, found that an office desk can have almost 21,000 germs per square inch and phones more than 25,000 germs per square inch. Compare that to the average office toilet seat that has 49 germs per square inch.1

What is an epidemic vs a pandemic?
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “a pandemic is a worldwide spread of a new disease.” Before a disease is declared as a pandemic, it has to exceed a few other levels, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
- When a disease occurs infrequently and irregularly.
- A constant presence and/or usual prevalence of a disease or infection within a geographic area.
- A sudden increase in the number of cases of a disease — more than what's typically expected for the population in that area.
- An epidemic that has spread over several countries or continents, affecting a large number of people.
Isn’t urethane more expensive than a traditional acrylic finish?
Yes and no. The cost of product per square foot for the application of urethane finish is more than an acrylic finish. However, customers will see a return on the initial investment in urethane because of the reduced need for ongoing regular maintenance. As a facility manager, this will also result in fewer disruptions within your premises.
